After finding this great place we returned every day. The coffee selection is great and the special drinks are delicious. And the chocolate selection is excellent. I was hooked on the dark chocolate nonpareils while my wife tried a new treat on every visit. The staffis very helpful and enthusiastic. This coffee and chocolate shop will draw us back to... More

Not what I expected. I was expecting a restaurant that had great chocolate deserts. This place just has great chocolate bars and decorated individual pieces. The chocolate truffles were very good. I think this is what makes this the place it is.

A nice shop with a great selection of chocolate candies. In addition to the specialty chocolate, there is a good selection of bulk candy and some old favorites. A little pricey, but I guess that is good, otherwise I would be here too often!

Is a nice place, had some acoustic music outside when i visited which created a nice atmosphere. Well stocked with some interesting wines and coffees. However, I just thought the chocolate was a little tasteless...I bought a selection of the delicious looking chocolates but they tasted a little sweet and bland to me...maybe coming from Europe I have developed a...

You walk in and you will have a eyeful of chocolate truffles and other goodies. The lattes were a little sweet though and not very strong. We tried the pumpkin cheesecake since it is October and also tiramisu which were alright, but the truffles were decadent.

This is a chocolate lover's dream! Lots of different options from cordials to truffles to haystacks! The peanut butter heaven can be split by a couple of people or someone in serious need of an attitude adjustment (peanut butter fudge, caramel, and chocolate!). The coffee was the perfect complement to the sweets and the hot chocolate was divine on a... More

Chocolates, coffee, wine, cookies, gifts and more!! I had the best cup of decaf coffee EVER! If I'd known I would have tried to buy some coffee beans to take home. We got to watch cookies being dipped in chocolate mmm!

This gem of a spot is simply delicious! Chocolate for everyone, coffee and wine. Tables inside and out. Sweet (ha ha) beachy atmosphere perfect for downtown Carlsbad. It's a must see while visiting.

As a diabetic, I check out the sugar-free options when we travel. While not plentiful, the sugar free options available are delicious. Skip the other desserts around town, and head right for a latte and sugar-free chocolate binge at Carlsbad Chocolate Bar! Dog friendly - water outside the front door, and always four-legged patrons seated with owners outside. :) Anyplace... More
